This is a placeholder page for the CardView addons currently in development and available for beta testing on GitHub

The CardView Addon is now actually a group of view, gramplet and other plugins that work together to provide an alternate interface that enables the user to navigate through the data in a Gramps genealogy database. It uses something similar to the Card motif popularized in modern web design to provide a visual overview of the data. In addition to the core card views it includes a simple list view for tags and a last changed gramplet.


The Card View addons appear as a new category view icon(s) in each of the categories except the Chart category and adds a new Tags category at the bottom of the left Navigator sidebar.

Configure Options

The options for customizing these card views are extensive and can even be applied in sets via templates.

Use the View ➡ Configure... menu or click the Gramps-config.pngConfigure the active view button in the Toolbar.
